    Scouting Trip

    Went out on a scouting trip to a new field this morning. The field was a place that I played softball back in the 80's, I had forgot about it till a few days ago when I was going through some old pictures with my misses. She told me I ought to go and hunt it to see if I could find some items.

    My first two hits were a 1942 and a 1946D wheat penny. I ended up with $3.47 in clad. When it was time to head back to the car I got a nice repeatable 42 on the AT Pro. When I opened the plug I saw a glimmer of gold and here is the result. 14KT, 1.57 grams

    I continued my trip back to the car and 7 feet away I got an 86 on the Pro and this is what popped out of the plug. Sterling 5.7 grams

    I haven't been able to identify the ring, but it looks like a class ring from 1941.

    Thanks, for viewing.

    So, a 42 on the AT PRO is indicative of 14kt?

    Thanks, Professor and retire05. I was running minus 10 on my ground balance. Most of the other gold I have found was always 47, is running th gb lower going too give a lower VDI?

    Thanks, Against the wind. The Misses has already laid claim to the gold ring, it's on her little finger as I write this . I get to add the silver to my collection.
